(JP: 'I think that is such a great record, and I seem to be alone in thinking so.')
(JP: 'I've always...ever since he started with Buffalo Springfield admired what Neil Young does. Not everything, I mean he makes the occasional poor LP, as far as I'm concerned, and may even make two in a row, but then he'll come back with a third one and do something that's really outstanding. On the other hand, I've never thought anything at all about...what are they called? Oh no, this is really's extraordinary: this is the sort of thing that happens to you as you drift into senility. What I'll do is play you the record that I was gonna play you and...what are they called? Self-important pub rock people...anyway, the people that he works with on this new LP...what are they called, those people?')
(JP: 'Pearl Jam, of course, that's the name I was trying to remember. Amazing how these things just die in your rock ordinaire, frankly, in their own right I think, but sounding OK on this LP.')
